Maupins’ arrest follows the Jan. 16, 2013, arrests of Alvin Avery Overman, Thomas Hickerson, Jr, and Kimberly Michelle Breeden by Tullahoma police investigators. The case alleges that Maupins, Overman and Hickerson had sex with a teenager under the age of 15.  All, including Breeden, were indicted by the June term of the grand jury on charges of seven counts of statutory rape by an authority figure, seven counts of sexual battery by an authority figure, 10 counts of aggravated statutory rape, seven counts of incest and two counts of statutory rape.

Police allege in their report that Breeden allowed the men to have sex with her daughter in exchange for crack cocaine. The alleged incidents occurred in June, July and August of last year.

The arrests came after the teenage girl’s father reported the alleged sexual activity between the girl and the men with her mother’s knowledge of the activity. According to investigators, the girl was given alcohol and drugs in exchange for sex.

Meanwhile, Tullahoma investigators have met with officials of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in reference to possible federal charges in the case.
